$1 Bulletin Board

[jill4.gif]



BHG inspired me with this picture of framed bulletin boards.


I've been thinking about it for more than a year, looking for a good frame and throwing ideas around in my head about what would work for the backing.







The frame is another second-hand find.

$1.







I used two layers of cardboard for the "bulletin board" backing.






I still had lots of the old burlap that Jeff found in the barn and I used it to cover the cardboard.







Hot glue came through for me again. 

Gluing right along the edge first and then folding the fabric in made a finished edge. Just in case anyone is looking at the back of my frame.







I stuffed the covered cardboard (which was even sturdier than I thought) into the back of the frame. A little glue really holds it in place.





I think my office is as done as it going to get, so look forward to a reveal tomorrow.

I can't wait to see it! And is that the curtain you used for the backing?

I love all your recycling/inexpensive craft ideas! I think we might be kindred spirits. :)
